and was renamed Isher Singh. Thus motivated by the life and teachings of Sant
Attar Singh Ji, he adopted the path of devotion and from him received the boon of propagating
Sikhism through "Kirtan" (singing of hymns).
When on 21st January 1927 Sant Attar Singh Ji left his corporeal being. Sant Isher
Singh Ji became sad and disconsolate. In order to overcome this despondency, he set out on
pilgrimage. After visiting Machiwara, Kiratpur Sahib, Sri Anandpur Sahib, Sri Amritsar Sahib,
Sri Nankana Sahib and Punja Sahib he came to Rara Sahib and settled here.
By virtue of his
devotion he turned this deserted place into a sacred place that has become famous the world
over. "A saint remembers the God and helps others remember Him also" following this principle
he devoted himself to worship and motivated the people to be 'Gur-sikhs' and to follow the
path, shown by the Sikh Gurus.
